Alex Brunacci


“I RE­ALLY do like this Freight­liner, it’s an ex-driver train­ing truck with only 480,000km on the clock. It still has its orig­i­nal dual brake ped­als, and it has been metic­u­lously looked af­ter. Look at the name on the bug de­flec­tor, Al­lessan­dro, and I guess you may get the pic­ture.”

And our eye was cer­tainly taken by this im­mac­u­late B&B Trans­port 1991 FL 112 Freight­liner, and its ami­able driver, Alex Brunacci from Launce­s­ton, when they wheeled in to the Cal­tex Road­house at Kemp­ton.

“I’m on my re­turn leg from Ho­bart back to Devon­port with two boxes, af­ter a fairly busy day,’’ Alex said.

“I’ve had the Freight­liner for three years now, and it is all I’d hoped for and ev­ery­thing is go­ing well, couldn’t be bet­ter in fact. It’s my own busi­ness, but I’ve al­ways had trucks.

“I also run B&B gar­den­ing and home main­te­nance, and that keeps me on my toes.

“I usu­ally put in a 15-hour day, and that’s seven days a week, but I en­joy keep­ing busy, and I love get­ting out on the road too.”

When asked about time off, Alex laughed and said “you’ve got to be jok­ing”.
